Anyway, you can do an act intentionally knowing its likely outcome and you can do an act recklessly - ie with no regard to the likely outcome.
The jury then has to decide whether a reasonable person should have foreseen the actual outcome; if so, the reckless behaviour is culpable.
In my mind, Trump was at best reckless and at worst intentional in his behaviour. Both culpable in law.
